Stand Up For The Week panellist, Paul Chowdhry, will perform his hilarious new tour ‘Innit’ at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal next week.
The British comedian and actor will cover a variety of topics in the show including Brexit, loss, dating in the age of Tinder, being mistaken for a terrorist, mental health and depression.
Having suffered with mental health issues throughout his life, the comic attends mental health groups to talk about depression, but he effortlessly conveys his troubled times to happier times with the use of his comedic talent.
This tour is his most personal set since the 2007 ‘Lost in Confusion’ tour in which Chowdhry talked about a racist attack inflicted on his father. Not one to shy away from difficult times, Chowdhry also talks about the passing of his mother at the age of five.
Since 2007, Chowdhry has had two sold-out tours including 2012’s ‘What’s Happening White People,’ and 2015’s ‘PC World.’ Both tours were filmed for DVD at Wembley Arena for his diverse audience who have been built up through word of mouth and social media.
Chowdhry began his career in 1998 and broke records quickly in 2003, becoming the first British act to perform at the Caribbean Comedy Festival, Trinidad.
Having dropped out of a computer science degree, he took a course in film and TV, appearing as an extra on TV drama Holby City and in the film, Rogue Trader.
Most recently in 2017, he also appeared as a guest performer on ‘The Russell Howard Tour’ and has also featured as a guest on 8 out of 10 Cats.
Paul Chowdhry will play his hugely popular ‘Innit’ tour at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal on Sunday 4th March. Tickets, priced at £23.50 in advance, are available at theatreroyal.co.uk.
